Seth Rollins opened Monday Night Raw by (verbally) slamming Roman Reigns for his 30-day suspension for violating the WWE’s wellness policy. Seth went off on Roman, saying his former teammate disgraced him! Click through to watch his brutal speech!
WWE superstar Seth Rollins, 30, started Monday Night Raw on June 27 by talking the Roman Reigns scandal, one that has deeply “embarrassed” him. Seth and Roman, 31, are tight, but after Roman was suspended on June 21 for violating the federation’s wellness policy, he wants nothing to do with him. Click through to watch him angrily explain.
“Let’s talk about how the biggest mistake Roman Reigns ever made, the Roman Reigns scandal, embarrassed me — because as the architect of The Shield, I brought Roman Reigns into the fold. And that mistake that he made that got him suspended, that embarrasses me. That soils my good name,” Seth told the roaring crowd.
Seth wants Roman out of their triple-threat Battleground match with WWE champion Dean Ambrose, 30, that’s set to happen on July 24 (a few days after his suspension is lifted). But Seth had some opposition. Dean’s music hit, and he said that Roman had owned up to his mistake; the match should continue as scheduled. It’s still not clear what Roman did to violate the wellness policy, and some think that the WWE is using his situation to further his wrestling storyline. Well, it’s working! He’s got tons of drama coming his way.
After Seth and Dean’s little spat, fellow champs AJ Styles, 39, and John Cena, 39, arrived to chat about Roman and up the ante. They suggested they could turn this into a pretty awesome five-way match! Since this way getting a little out of hand, WWE exec Stephanie McMahon came out and decided this thing once and for all: Seth vs. John, AJ vs. Dean. It’s unclear where Roman fits into this equation, but he’s not out!
